HP RF Planner

Product overview

HP RF Planner is built on a unique, patent-pending RF propagation model. This model provides outstanding accuracy by drawing from a comprehensive knowledge base of RF characteristics for HP Access Points and sensors; third-party equipment (client cards, access points, and directional antennas); and building materials. Open-air modeling capabilities facilitate the design of outdoor campus and municipal networks. In addition, integration with RF Manager allows importing of planning and device placement information for easy deployment.
